Insect that looks like a dehiscing brassica pod

I have never seen anything like this before.  The above describes it very well.  the abdomen looks like the top part of the pod, even with the characteristic beak and straw colour, and the wings look like pod walls that have separated in dehiscence.  At the right time of year it would be fantastic camouflage.  It sat for some hours on the outside surface of a door and when nudged did not want to fly - it just raised itself up on its legs.  It has gone now.

 

Can anyone identify it, please?
